When it came to serving dramatic looks, the attendees of the 2019 Met Gala did NOT disappoint. This year's theme was "Camp: Notes on Fashion," which means it's all about pushing outfits to the limits, meta fashion, being extra in the most fabulous way possible, and truly committed costuming. As with much of the gaudiest and most creative fashion to hit the runway, Camp owes an enormous debt to drag culture, black culture, and black drag culture - where it originated.
All this is to say, the 2019 Met Gala was NOT an occasion for plain black suits, subtle evening gowns, or even a classic red carpet dress. If you're not getting creative, you might as well go home, but luckily, a lot of attendees fully committed to the theme.
